2018 Chevrolet Camaro Gets Some Minor Pricing Increases
Last year, we polled a large group of Chevrolet Camaro enthusiasts and asked them what is preventing them from buying a 6th generation car and the most common reply was price. This is likely one of the reasons why General Motors will look to adapt the pricing structure and the standard features of each trimline in the future, as the automaker works to lower prices in order to more closely compete with the Ford Mustang. However, those redesigned trimlines and lower prices aren’t happening for 2018, as the 2018 prices are out and while the changes are minor – the 2018 Camaro costs more than the 2017 Camaro.
2018 Chevrolet Camaro Prices Detailed
The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1LS coupe with the 2.0L Turbocharger 4-cylinder and the manual transmission starts at $26,900 while the convertible with the same features starts at $32,900 – both of which are the same as the 2017 Camaro 1LS prices. The 2018 Camaro 1LE Coupe with the 3.6L V6 starts at $28,395 and the similar convertible starts at $34,295, also matching the 2017 prices.
When you step up to the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT with the 2.0L engine, pricing starts at $27,695 while the 2LT with the turbo-4 starts at $32,990. Adding the V6 engine lifts the Camaro 1LT coupe to $29,190 and the 2018 Camaro 2LT Coupe with the V6 starts at $34,485.
Next, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS Coupe starts at $37,995 and the 1SS convertible starts at $43,995, while the 2SS hardtop starts at $42,995 and the loaded 2SS convertible starts at $48,995.
Last and most certainly not least, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 starts at $63,795 and the ZL1 droptop starts at $69,795.
Comparisons to 2017 Camaro Pricing
The good news is that if you are planning on buying a 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1LS as a coupe or convertible with either the turbo-4 or the V6 engine, you will be paying the same prices that you would have for 2017, as the “base model” pricing remains unchanged for the new year.
If you opt for the 2018 Camaro 1LT with either non-V8 engine or either roof option, you will pay $100 more than you would have for 2017 while the 2LT models increase by $95.
Also, the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 1SS and 2SS in both coupe and convertible forms all see their prices climb by $95, so while the majority of 2018 Camaro trimlines do cost more than they did for 2017 – the price increases top out at $100.
More importantly, in looking through the long list of options and packages for the 2018 Chevrolet Camaro, it looks as though pretty much all of the optional items and packages carry over their prices from 2017, so in the long run – buying a 2018 Camaro will only cost you about $100 more than buying a 2017 Camaro with the same features.
